If you are over the age of 16 and have learning disabilities, with or without autism, you might like to try co-farming with us. We run co-farming sessions of 6 hours each weekday, and these include a rich variety of outdoor, purposeful activities in animal husbandry, horticulture and seasonal tasks. Co-farming offers people meaningful occupation, opportunities to improve physical health and well-being, and the chance to be an important part of a productive and welcoming community.
Working in small groups supported by our fantastic team of Programme Leaders, FarmAbility co-farmers gain a real sense of purpose and achievement while building the practical and vocational skills they need to move forward in their lives.
Co-farmers come to the farm for day sessions from 10 am until 4 pm. FarmAbility is open 50 weeks in the year, whatever the weather, offering seasonal activity choices, goal-directed learning opportunities, an appropriate level of enabling support and a ‘can do’ attitude – all this while having fun too!
Co-farming at FarmAbility is a fantastic way to find out all the things you can do.
